Car Accident

Recreational Vehicle Accidents

Recreational vehicles are dirt bikes, motorcycles, three–wheeled vehicles, all terrain vehicles (ATVs), snowmobiles, sleds, and personal watercraft such as Jet Skis and WaveRunners. Accidents can include collisions, crashes, rollovers, and more.

Difference between Car Accidents and Recreational Vehicle Accidents

Typically, insurance plays a big role. Car accidents usually have drivers who have car insurance, while people who operate recreational vehicles aren't typically required to carry insurance. In these cases, most recreational vehicle accidents are covered under homeowner's policies.

Also, a car driver is required to have a driver's license. This is not necessarily the case for someone operating a recreational vehicle. Other regulations, such as traffic laws, may not exist in the case of a particular accident. In this case, negligent supervision or negligent entrustment, especially if the driver is a minor or an inexperienced operator.

Injuries that May Result

While motorcyclists are typically required to wear helmets in the event of a crash, helmets are not required while traveling on most other recreational vehicles. As such, head and brain injuries, as well as amputations, back or spinal injuries, fractures and broken bones, as well as long–term or permanent disability can occur following a recreational vehicle accident. It may be possible to incur medical, nursing, and psychological expenses for care. Future home care, prosthetics and other devices, and other costs may be involved.
